Can the Rapids win their first game in Denver since late May?

After losing to Vancouver last Saturday, the Colorado Rapids are looking to bounce back as they host the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday night. It's the first time that the Rapids have played in Denver since May 26 due to recent hiatus caused by the Euro 2012 international tournament and a couple of US Men's National Team games in World Cup Qualifying.

Last week's 1-0 loss to Vancouver dropped the Rapids below .500 on the season, but they're still in fifth place in the Western Conference. They're nearly as close in the standings to fourth-place Seattle (five points) as they are to last-place FC Dallas (six points), though.

San Jose should provide a challenge, as the second-place Earthquakes have lost just three matches all season. This is the first time that San Jose has played after the extended break for Euro 2012.

Game time/date: 7:30 p.m. MT, Wednesday, June 20

Location: Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Denver, CO

TV: Altitude
